I don't have lace to toe but I have read the same thing, lace to toe provides narrower or tighter fit.
Folks who own both could confirm?
But just spoke to someone at bakers and she said it gives more space for the toe box, and better for wider feet. Which is great if true. But I also would like a second confirmation on this, just because it contradicts what I’ve read.

All of Baker's staff are extremely pleasant to talk to but for fit related questions you might want to get hold of Brandon or Kyle.

I have 3 LTT in my lineup and my feeling is they provide a bit more adjustable fit.. I dont know that I would say wider or narrower when compared to my non LTT. They feel a bit different but I think that is a function of slight design difference.

Any idea what the hell this is?
Its more pronounced on the right boot but its in the left one as well. It is like a raised bump about the size of a dime and its hard. I've put about 100-125 hrs on these and I didn't notice it until I started to feel it on the right boot today and looked and there they were. I checked my old pair of Whites and its on the right boot as well but completely flat and not elevated. Its not on the left one. Any idea what it is? :rolleyes:

I believe these have from the lasting process? I could be wrong

make me jealous - what did you all get (or are planning to get) with the 20% off coupon from Baker's?
7" Bounty Hunters in British Tan, 5050 last, 10B, lined, Medalion soft toe, cut top, pull tab, kiltie, traveler heel, and mini half commando sole.

Leap of Faith-still waiting for my SD's ordered on BF.
I trust Kyle with the sizing though.

I ordered a pair of Frontiersman boots this morning. They seem to be a good choice for what I want them for, and the wider flatter last should suit me. The countdown begins…

Those here who own the Semi Dress on 38 swing last and 55 last - which do you prefer and why? I'm debating which last to get, the 55 is the safe pick since I already know my size. I don't have super wide feet so I don't "need" the 38 swing per se, I just like the profile from the top down and how it sort of resembles crocs (my favorite footwear even over boots lol).
